    Acronym.

    I spoke to UPS and gave the code 6201.99.8030 and my duties were reduced to $65. If you already paid duties though, it's extremely difficult to get them reduced. Few initial thoughts: Collar – I've liked the folded collar since they originally showed 2.2 with the 3A-1s, and it really is a great refinement. With the last J1A, I always ended up folding the collar over anyways. I don't like the collar up as much, as the collar seems really skinny and high, so its less proportional than previous J1A's, especially without the hood. Gravity Pockets –The redesigned gravity pockets are an improvement too. Much less in the way, and easier to open and close the zips. Zippers – I wonder why they decide to keep the shiny zippers vs. the matte zippers on other jackets (like J47). Aesthetically, I like both but the matte zippers feel way smoother to me. Fit – The sizes on the site were identical to the previous version but it seems a bit boxier. With a J58 underneath, I have much more radial movement than I recall with the last version. Although, it has been a couple years since I last owned it. Hood – Perfect. The shape is great, and it no longer has those flaps that the last version did. The flaps always bothered the hell out of me so I'm happy they got rid of them. I'm also able to get the hood over my head with the storm collar all the way zipped, which I've not always been able to do with other ACRNM jackets.

    Received mine today. I did find a QC sticker in each of the front pockets...

    Here's what I noticed: New hood New collar (This collar is also fundamentally different than even the J69, which doesn't include a collar stand) Second snap higher on the jacket (as they've done on many recent jackets like J47 / J69 / J66, etc.) Hidden snap at bottom of zip Black snaps (old ones were silver) Added back hitch tab (from OG version) Also first time I can recall them actually listing the models heights which is probably very useful for people new to the brand

    Has anyone washed any of the jackets with reverse raw edges (like the J66 or J69) yet? Curious if a wash increases the amount of fraying.

    Speaking of leaks...could be wrong but this seems to be a new insulator as seen on Erlsn's IG.

    Really depends on the fit of each Acronym jacket. My general rule is that I size up for Profile fitting jackets and stay with my regular size for Straight fitting jackets. J58 is tight in the chest because the fit is Profile and supposed to layer underneath shells.

    For anyone who is an XL, Kith still has a J47TS-GT in Black in store.

    I am 6'1 (185cm), and same weight as you. Not sure what my chest measurement is ATM but with "Straight" fit jackets, I have always worn a Medium. On recent "Profile" shells like J62-S and J69, I sized up to a Large. The J74 is the first time I sized up on a "Straight" fit jacket. I tried both M and L but the Large just seemed to drape way better. The way Umit is wearing the J74 is how the Medium fit me whereas the way Lenny is wearing the Medium is how the Large fits me if that helps.

    Re: J74 - I also noticed that the acrnm website lists the jacket as "STRAIGHT" fit but the Spec Sheet reads "PROFILE".

    I got mine today too. I actually sized up from M to L, and while the fit is slightly oversized, I like how relaxed it fits and appreciate the extra length. The face fabric is so silky its extremely easy to layer with. I can wear a hoodie, J74, and a hardshell, and still have complete mobility. With my J58, there is no way I could layer a hoodie underneath. I couldn't agree more with the double sided entry front pockets too; they're perfect.

    Agreed that the 47 iteration is the best version. In its minimalist state, the pocket array and zipper placement is perfectly balanced. I saved the measurements from when I bought my 47R, and they are exactly the same as the 47TS so I don't think they changed the fit block. Having said that, I always felt like my 58 fit pretty well under my 47 because its a bit roomier than other jackets to begin with.

    Thanks for sharing. From the product shots, I also thought the collar on the 47 looked slightly revised. With the hood out, the TS seems to hold its shape better, which is something that has always bothered me on my 47R. One question: Does the 47TS have the same high pocket that the 47, 47A, and 47R have or does it only have the one that dips down like the 47A? Surprised the product shots don't show the full pocket array.

    I would be very surprised if the J1A previewed in the 3A-1 images is hoodless. I think it's more likely the hood has just been removed, and the collar flipped down. Price-wise I don't think you're wrong.
